Re: [linux-lvm] Simulating LVM Mirror Failure and recovery



hi all,

Thanks for all the replies. as pointed out by Eric brunson i was referring to the following document

http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5/html/Cluster_Logical_Volume_Manager/mirrorrecover.html 

i used the below command to simulate failed sda and then wrote some data to the mounted file system to trigger LVM conversion to linear mode.

# echo offline > /sys/block/sda/device/state 

thanks to all.
regards
-yogeen
